Pragya Project was started in the year 2009-10 with the objective of enabling primary school children to acquire knowledge through activities. This was initially implemented as a project for standard 1 and 2 students. The project was continued till standard 3, 4 and 5 with good success. The Pragya project was then adopted as the Pragya approach. It was ensured that class work is done in all the primary schools of Gujarat according to the Pragya approach.
Due to lack of expected success in this approach, many changes were made in Pragya approach again in the year 2017-18 and according to the new changes, this approach was continued in Std. 1 and 2 and closed in Std. 3, 4 and 5.
Given the workings of the Pragya approach it ensures a planned classroom work. However, due to some limitations and difficulties, he was called a failure by the teachers. So now this approach has been continued only for Std. 1 and 2 with the new amendment.
The main objective of the Pragya approach – “Children learn on their own, at their own convenience and according to their own ability”.
However, this approach has been implemented for the purpose of overcoming various problems in education and for the purpose of pragya approach (activity based learning approach). So that children can get interesting learning by experiencing every activity that takes place in the classroom on their own.
